Thank you to Gavina for the photos (as my camera was rubbish on the night haha!)

Last Saturday I went to the #EastMidsMeetUp which was hosted by the lovely Emma and had such a great time! It was so nice to meet up with other local bloggers and take the blogging community offline and into real life for the day. We had been using the #EastMidsMeetUp hashtag on twitter for quite a while too so it was nice to meet people in person and figure out who was who from their twitter/blog pictures (que lots of 'ohhh so yoooouuu'reeee so & so, nice to meet you' comments!) We started off by doing some shopping in Westfields in Derby (which is mega crazy huuuuge) as this gave us an opportunity to mingle and get our Secret Santa presents. I had picked out Charlie and so decided to get her a bath bomb from Lush. We then made our way over to The Fat Cat Cafe for the whole group to meet up and get a chance to mingle with others and talk some more. After stuffing our faces, Emma handed out all the goody bags that she had spent months organising and preparing for us and there was so much stuff to go through! We also swapped our Secret Santa presents which was exciting and I got the Snow Fairy shower gel from Lush bought by Emily from What Em Loves which smells like sweets and bubblegum and candyfloss and summer so thank you to Emily for that!

All in all it was a lovely day/evening and was nice to see how many local bloggers there are! A massive thank you to Emma for organising and hosting - I can imagine it was stressful but was a definite success! Hopefully I'll have a couple of reviews up about some of the samples soon!

Have you guys been to an event recently?

  1. This sounds like so much fun! I'm pretty new to blogging and have never been to a meet up but I love the idea. I had to take a break recently and am so gutted I missed out on hearing about this as I also live in the East Midlands! Hopefully next time I will be more tuned in and hopefully will be able to get involved too :) Love the photos you've taken btw. Sophie x

    1. Ah would have been nice to see you there but yes hopefully there will be more East Mids/Nottingham blogger meet ups soon! :) xx

  7. you lucky girl!! We've always wanted to attend a bloggers event, but there aren't many here in Australia :(

  8. I so want to go to a meet up, its really out of my comfort zone but when I see posts like this it properly looks worth it, even if I'm being slightly drawn in by the contents of the goody bag

    Please come check out my latest post if you have time :)
